As a member of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, Lucia believes that her background has helped her immensely in her career. Born in Peru, Lucia moved to the United States as a young child. Being foreign-born and raised in a bilingual household have significantly influenced Lucia’s approach to problem solving and relationship building. “Being able to visualize and communicate across multiple perspectives, and work through potential communication barriers, has played a major role in my career and life in general.” This background has played a major role in developing and incorporating empathy and emotional intelligence when it comes to legal situations.
Lucia is a member of the International Association of Defense Counsel, an organization which provides legal services and counsel to clients throughout the world. An avid traveler, Lucia believes that the lessons of travel are truly universal. “The more you travel and nurture an awareness of what’s going on in the world, the more it broadens your mind and your capacity for compassion and understanding. I do my job better because of it.”
